Re: Tons of wild garlic - any ideas?

It's just a simple paste:

Wash and dry 100g of wild garlic leaves
Chop finely (we used our 112year old mincer :shock: )
Add 5g salt and mix
Leave for 15 minutes
Add 100ml Vegetable oil (not olive oil)
Stir and jar, topping up with a little more oil!

Have fun x

Re: Tons of wild garlic - any ideas?

Made wild garlic preserve, used some in casseroles and some to make wild garlic bread! Going to make loads more of the preserve and hopefully sell some at the autumn craft fair!

Re: Britons, get your acts together

Perhaps a more suitable post would have been one that was put in a less adversarial way?

The posters on this forum are the very people in general who are trying to minimise their energy useage and to leave as small a footprint on the world as possible!
